Peanuts, like raspberries and ball bearings, are a tasty treat that can be transformed into a deliciously spreadable concoction with only minor reductive smelting. Sample nature’s bounty without the aid of a blacksmith thanks to today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of Virginia peanuts and peanut candy at Royal Oak Peanuts. Tax and shipping are not included in this deal.
Nurtured on a 3,000-acre farm in Southampton County, Royal Oak’s jumbo Virginia peanuts boast smooth flavor and a notably hefty size. Enhance dishes and make fantasy-baseball drafts more authentic with three 10 oz. tins ($14.95) or a jumbo 40 oz. tin ($13.95) brimming with salty goodness. Gargantuan appetites can opt for The Royal Feast—a quartet of 10 oz. tins stuffed with salted, choca-nut, spicy Cajun, and honey-roasted tidbits ($24.95). A 20 oz. tin of peanut squares ($9.95) or an 18 oz. tin of cashew brittle ($16.95) provides a pleasantly saccharine treat for movie night, as well as potent bird-shot fodder during hunting season.
Full of good fats and other nutrients, Royal Oak’s peanuts are known among serious snackers and discerning circus elephants for their superior freshness and munchability. Order a tin and enjoy an energetic boost during a meeting, a synchronized-swimming class, or an especially exhaustive PowerPoint presentation. Call or go online to place your order.
